TimeCamp and Jira integration

Jira is a web app designed to help teams manage their work and projects. Best known as a powerful work management tool, it helps companies plan, build, and launch products and services.

However, a project tracker needs a more advanced time tracker, like TimeCamp, for better project management and monitoring of tasks and costs. TimeCamp and Jira can be integrated for smooth and seamless time tracking.

Jira time tracking

Atlassian was initially developed as a bug and issue tracker but later became a project management tool. It has a native time tracker for project monitoring.

Its native tracker can track time in different ways, such as monitoring the working hours per day, week, or hour. Jira time tracking subtasks is another feature of its tracker.

However, you can change your time tracking provider that offers more features, not only time tracking. There are more advanced time trackers that offer more, such as TimeCamp.

TimeCamp offers automatic time tracking, productivity tracking, invoicing, billing, budgeting, attendance, reporting, and timesheet approvals. It is also available in Atlassian Marketplace, which means it is compatible with Jira.

How time tracking with Jira works

Time tracking with Jira works by integrating it with time tracking apps, such as TimeCamp.

Integrating Jira and TimeCamp will improve automatic time tracking when working even on simple tasks. You can also define unique keywords to let the TimeCamp time tracker automatically switch on and off when you work on a specific project.

Additionally, time tracking integration gives clear insights into how the team can effectively perform projects and meet deadlines with close monitoring and timely reports.

It does not limit your Jira experience because TimeCamp is in Jira. So, you can utilize TimeCamp's timesheets and mobile or desktop applications when you use Jira.
